Snowmaking 5k classic tracks are pretty darn nice. A nice combo of kick snow and a bit of glide glaze, deep and no washouts to speak of. Thanks groomer for battling the ice!

Lake Trail and Oak Knob (natural snow) were nicely rolled, but not tracked. A few shallow user tracks are scattered around Lake, but not much on Oak Knob. The manmade loop tracks are excellent. There were some leaves and thin spots in a few areas, but nothing to worry about. Really pleasant quiet ski today.

Skated the Lake Trail and conditions were great! Few oak leaves and bare spots but not many. Snow hard packed and fast. Only part of the loop has classic tracks.

Whelp no classic tracks on the natural trails; maybe there just isn't enough snow to set. Some thin spots on the hills of the hill trail that were all easily avoided. Great condition on the man made track.

Skied all loops this morning. Natural is 100% covered. Good skis ok. No track set. Night shift groomers did a great job of packing and grooming new wind blown snow. Nice to see all the skiers out on a chilly day. Check out the WCCO YouTube video taken at Hyland yesterday.

I'm listing it as all trails open but there are no classic tracks on the natural snow trails. The man made loop tracks are perfect and the skate deck firm. Strided on a couple of the natural trails and found them soft but plenty of snow.

Skied the man-made trails only early morning. Snow falling while I skied from 1-2 inches by time I finished. Shout out to the crew at Hyland for great grooming. Snow made it much slower skiing than Thursday morning, but love the snow. Hope the natural snow trails get better for skating after this snow fall!
